NOTICE: To have a profile here, you MUST have a ride, meaning, a kart.
So we're clear: This site was inspired by our buddies at Urban Guerrilla Go-Karting... with a twist, and some other crap thrown in.
So, what do you do with all of those unloved yard karts? You make a hot rod go kart, also known as a "Kart Rod."
What's a Kart Rod? Well, using the original "hot rod" building concept, you build a hot rod go kart with whatever you can round up or have at the time. Of course, new parts are always needed here & there, but the idea here is to make ride with whatever you have & spend very little money on it.
It's about creation & character, using what you have to make something cool... not about having the correct parts to be accepted.
In the end, if your creation is powdercoated... you did it wrong.
Then if you're up to it, we race em...
If you think you're one of us, then perhaps you should read more, then hit the Forum & look at the build threads.

Kart Rods.com is all for preserving the integrity of vintage karting and no vintage karts or their associated parts were injured in the making of this project. It's a new class of karting enthusiast, a place for the creative oddballs.
